    I like them but only have one in my collection, it's an older Kaywoodie. I do like the Hackert pokers and also I've seen some nice Boswell pokers but they are a little to highly priced for me.

    Something about the shape feels clunky. Billiards, brandies and dunlins all have some variation in the shape of the bowl whereas the poker is simply a cylinder, and for whatever the reason even a straight of those shapes with the shank attached at the bottom seems more appealing than being attached up the cylinder. Some of the Dunhill blasted pokers with the strongly angled bottom are appealing, but not the price!

    I have only two Pokers.
    The first one is made in London, England and that is all it says. No name, no shape number, nothing.
    The second one is made by the Danish pipemaker Børge Bluhme-Jensen to my specifications and it's one
    of two pipes that I can use for flake tobacco without getting into trouble.

    I can't say I fancy that shape too much. I've been looking at them for a while but I don't think I would get one, though.

    Hello,

    I like the poker shape.

    I have two pokers. The one from Michele Sottocasa is in my opinion a Poker Pot/
